** CANADA. 382 kHz, Feb 19 at 0704 UT, beacon YPL and dash, 1000 watts from 
Pickle Lake, Ont. Spring is nigh, and some lightning crashes are starting, 
worse on lower frequencies, which may curtail such DXing before long (Glenn 

** CUBA. 6165, UT Mon Feb 19 at 0246, RHC is undermodulated --- and in Spanish 
instead of English! In fact it`s `En Contacto` wrapping up early from nominal 
0235 start, just the same as I had it 12 hours earlier. Only 6000 is on now in 
English, the others Spanish: 5040, 9535, 9640; 11760 VP dead air or something 

Recheck at 0508, 6165 is still Spanish, not // 6000 music in English service. 
6165 still Spanish, hum and undermodulated, at 0644. At 0646, 6060 is also 
Spanish with big hum, instead of English after 0600. Something`s always wrong 
at RHC. At least 6000 now has good modulation and lite hum during music in 
presumed solo English hours (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, UT Mon Feb 19 at 0512-0521, Arnie Coro confirmed reactivated 
`DXers Unlimited`, only 9 minutes long, mostly about propagation, citing WWV 
info without credit, and OK1HH, the propagation info from PIG I would quote on 
MN+. Except for canned open & close, he`s lo fi via phone as usual from home; 
deep fades impede 100% copy. Content is about the same as he uttered on Spanish 
DX program; convergence of the two to be expected with the same guy in charge 

** CUBA. 15370-AM, Feb 19 at 1425, no FM spurs detected today; something`s not 
wrong at RHC. Seems modulation has been decreased, maybe reducing the spewage 

** ETHIOPIA [and non]. 7236.280, Feb 19 at 1410, substantial carrier no doubt 
from R. Ethiopia long-path; keeps drifting upward as I try to measure it, but 
nailed here at 1416. Also weaker JBA carriers from the Eritreans not remeasured 
precisely, 7181.55, 7140.0+ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH AFRICA [and non]. 6155, Feb 19 at 0253, African music S9-S7, 0300 
Channel Africa ID. I was not expecting to hear this before scheduled *0300, so 
a prélude? Or was it the otherstation scheduled 0200-0300, BBCWS in English via 
Oman? Did not notice any transmission transition (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX 

** U S A. 347 kHz, Feb 19 at 0704 UT, beacon AFK, which is Nebraska City, NE. 
Classaxe says power unknown and notes the ID is fast (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX 

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1917 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria 

``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR on 9485 CUSB, Feb 18 
1131-1200 9485 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg CeEu English Sun, weak/fair``

I confirmed UT Monday February 19 at 0030 on WBCQ, 9330.30v-CUSB, fair. Also 
confirmed from 0400 UT Mon Feb 19 on Area 51 webcast, and via WBCQ, 5129.83, 
fair-good at 0414. Also confirmed UT Mon Feb 19 at 0436 the 0430 on WRMI 9455 
S9+10/20 and weaker // 9955 (just a semihour earlier both were JBA). Next:
Tue 0030   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030   WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030   WRMI 7780 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1918?]

** U S A. 9330.241v-CUSB, Feb 19 at 1553, WBCQ BS is poor; had been rather 
stable around 9330.3 the last few days (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475 & 5830, Feb 19 at 1552, WTWW-1 is missing from both day and 
night frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1130, Feb 18 at 1911 UT and 2048 UT chex, KLEY Wellington KS is still 
totally SNAFU as described before, since first discovered Feb 14, but may have 
been that way much earlier; now I intend to reconfirm at least once a day: 
likewise Feb 19 at 1515 UT. Incredible that anystation would let this go on and 
on and on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1260, Feb 19 at 1521 UT, YL in Spanish is atop, presumably the one I 
have heard before, KDLF, Boone IA (Des Moines market = De Los Monjes). NRC AM 
Log shows the other SS 1260s are in: AR-silent, FL, ID, SC, TX, some of them 
religious. Now rather than Spanish from 1250 KS, 1270 TX which are more common 

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Feb 19 at 0648: conditions 
not as good as have been, but detect: 531, 558, 567, 585, 603, 693, 747, 837, 
855, 882, 999, 1089, 1098, 1125(2), 1215 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
